The temptation to exchange peace for worry can be real. Sometimes the reality of “peace that surpasses all understanding” is so contrary to our flesh that we feel like we’re not doing enough, or that peace isn’t normal in the midst of trying times. A lot of times, it’s not a question of whether or not God will come through, it’s a matter of “Exactly how long can I remain this calm throughout the rest of this process? 😂 Can I discipline myself to stay in this peace, and in the love of God?”
The answer is YES.
YES, you can.
Last night, I opened my Bible, and it fell to 2 Chronicles 20. It is a great reminder of God’s faithfulness when His children turn their faces to Him. If you’re battling with staying in peace, this is what the Lord has to say:
“Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed at this great horde for the battle is not yours but God’s.”
“You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf.”
“Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be established; believe His Words, and you will succeed.”
Praise before your breakthrough.
“And when they began to sing and praise, the Lord set an ambush against their enemies.”
